What type of plasma is Sun composed of?

cold
hot
ultracold
none of the above
The Sun is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, with internal convective motion that generates a magnetic field via a dynamo process. Hot plasmas (thermal plasmas) have electrons and the heavy particles at the same temperature, i.e. they are in thermal equilibrium with each other. Cold plasmas (nonthermal plasmas) on the other hand have the ions and neutrals at a much lower temperature, whereas electrons are much "hotter".
